Author: Bodanis, David
Media Type: Book

Description: "Everyday in the hours between dawn and dusk in gardens and backyards everywhere, a curious invisible world comes to life. The Secret Garden takes you on an eye-opening journey through this mysterious domain where plants and insects engage daily in a Darwinian epic of survival. Caterpillars attack a shrub, which in turn sends a chemical signal to call for help from a passing wasp. Trees puff out warning vapors signaling that they are under attack by insects. State-of-the-art micrographs take you up close transforming the world around you and illustrating these wonders at work." ~ From their brochure.
